Burgers & Cupcakes

We got burgers at our neighborhood Mitchel London Burgers & Cupcakes a few weeks ago.

They make excellent burgers cooked to order with a bunch of optional toppings. On this last visit I put together a bacon, avocado, and cheddar burger. It was awesome.

The thing that made it so awesome was that the thick cut bacon wasn't really thick cut bacon. Instead it was crispy bacon lardons. They're probably left over from the catering side of the business, but that doesn't detract from their essential awesomeness.

We also got a side of onion rings and fries. They were okay. Mabel tried their homemade lemonade which was inexcusably bad. I don't think it was an isolated incident either because I got lemonade at their adjacent pizza place last night and it was just as bad. Oh well, you can't have it all.

Last night I picked up a couple cupcakes from them to go.

Their cupcakes are as good as your typical cupcake, namely, fantastic! They seem to be of the cupcakes-as-vectors-for-frosting school.
